So over the weekend I attended the Simply Elegant Platinum Wedding Expo at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, MA and it was unbelievable experience! At first things did not start on the right foot, when myself along with my maid of honor Steph and my bridesmaid Veronica got to the wedding expo. It took us about 15 minutes just to find the Seaport World Trade Center, we ended up going to the Seaport Hotel by mistake and then when we got to the Seaport World Trade we were on the wrong floor of the building. Finally though we made it to the registration booth and received our goodie bags from WeddingWire.com, which included a "diamond" ring.
We were greeted at the front door by a beautiful ice sculpture and a big sign welcoming us to the expo:
As we entered the expo we were greeted by the delicious and colorful table for Montellio Cakes, later on we went back when they were giving out samples and I had a piece of vanilla cake with white butter cream frosting and the filling was strawberries and Grand Mariner, which was delicious!!!
Then my maid of honor Steph and I decided we wanted to see how we both looked holding wedding bouquets and I think we both looked so pretty :-) I have to tell you thought while I was holding on of those bridal bouquets at the expo I couldn't get over how heavy they are, but there were beautiful!
One of my favorite parts of the bridal expo was the Bridal VIP suite, it was so amazing in there! There were Vera Wang gowns to try on, they were giving free hair and makeup trials for brides to-be, and the best part there were giving out free massages! They also served drinks and some delectable treats like chocolate covered strawberries, we definitely had a blast in the VIP suite!
As the day wore down we headed over to the Battle of the Cakes competition, which Billy Costa was hosting as well. There were 5 teams from different bakeries around the Boston Area competing to get there wedding cakes on the cover of the next issue of Boston Brides magazine. After the cakes were completed we looked around at them and these two cakes stuck out to us, but I absolutely loved the Cinderella cake, which I feel should have won, but alas it did not.
Overall it was a fantastic wedding expo, in a beautiful location, and I had a fun girl's day out with Steph and Veronica. I would definitely recommend if you are getting married in the near future and need some help or need to get ideas, then the Simply Elegant Platinum Wedding Expo is the perfect wedding expo to go see.
